What is household hazardous waste? If the product label has one or more of the following words on it, chances are you should take your product to Kitsap’s HHW facility.
For a list of what is and is not accepted, go here. Fire extinguishers are not on either list, but they are accepted.
Empty containers belong in the garbage.
And congratulations to Kitsap County Solid Waste’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) team, which received a 2021 “Program Excellence” award from the North American Hazardous Materials Management Association!
